Does a PVC Fence Need Regular Maintenance?

If you own a traditional fence, you’ve most likely had to call someone over for maintenance or struggle with handling repairs and cleaning yourself. You may have just accepted fence care as a normal part of life, but what if we told you that it’s not? At Mossy Oak Fence Orlando, we’ll show you how PVC fences require little to no maintenance.

The Aging Process

PVC fences (more commonly known as vinyl fencing) are made up of synthetic materials that barely degrade over time, if ever. This is a severe contrast from wooden fences which have a much shorter lifespan since wood is way more vulnerable to the elements. Water leads to moisture which can eventually cause wood to lose its structural integrity and grow hazardous mold. Even untreated metal fencing can rust and deteriorate over time when exposed to wet air or direct contact with water. Since vinyl fencing isn’t affected by these natural occurrences, it’s no wonder they have a much longer lifespan.

Is There Physical Labor Involved?

Any woodworker knows that even the highest quality wood needs some hands-on touches every now and then. Sanding, staining, painting, and coating are all very time-consuming to do on your own and costly when hiring other people to do it for you. PVC fences don’t require any of these treatments. One of the perks of being synthetic is that vinyl fences are literally made to be perfect, so no further adjustments are needed unless you so desire.

Ditch Your Pest Control Guy

Termites and other insects have no interest in PVC fences because there’s nothing of nutritional value for them to sustain themselves. You’ll never need to worry about spraying down your fence with bug repellant or calling your local pest control to overcharge you for their services. Pests that become interested in your fence will make their way into your home shortly after, so in the end you’d also be avoiding a much bigger problem that could leave you with headaches and a very sad wallet.

Cleaning is a Breeze

With PVC fencing, there’s no need to look up a video tutorial online or skim through endless articles to find the most optimal way of keeping your fence clean. If your vinyl fence gets dirty, all it takes is a spray of the garden hose to make it look brand new again. You can wipe it down with a soft towel afterward, but there’s no harm in letting the warm sun run its course. For areas that are a bit tougher, rubbing in a little bit of regular soap will be more than enough to effectively spot-clean it.
